    Central north island ish unguided hunts

    Hey guys and girls
    Looking to take the old man and brother out for a weekend hunt to get their first deer.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of a place that offers unguided hunting for meat animals. It seems most places stipulate must be guided
    Ideally would also have a hut to stay in. Not looking for a fancy lodge.
    Cheers
    James

    There are usually a few on trademe but they are probably only doing trophy hunts at this time of year

    I've found that unguided hunts on private property normally come after the landowner or guiding company trust you enough to not enforce the use of a guide.
    It's safe to say that some places will never allow this.
    I imagine the ones that do allow unguided hunts, will be kept under wraps. It wouldn't take much to ruin a good thing. e.g. just one person not paying for a un-recovered animal, or shooting a 12 point stag, and paying for a spiker etc.

    I don't think you can sell hunts without a guide and a safety management plan.

    Not legally anyway.

    Yep those days are long gone, even ‘access’ through a ‘mate of a mate’ is a hell of a lot different...

    Gee didn't realize that 😏
    Yup I hunt on doc a lot and also have access to hunting where I farm.
    Was just looking for somewhere new and possibly fallow deer as I haven't shot many of them before.
    Will keep looking and may just have to go the guided route.
